Hardstyle and Jumpstyle

projectOneAlbumCoverSo i just bought Project One, which is an album by the two DJs, Headhunterz and Wildstylez. But not after listening to tons of different hardstyle/jumpstyle songs. I have to say, Headhunterz is my favorite DJ :]

For those of you that don’t know what hardstyle is, it’s a form of techo/dance/electronica music. It’s also a form of dance that consists of shuffling such as the running man and melbourne shuffle.

Jumpstyle music is relatively the same as hardstyle music, but the dance is different. Jumpstyle, or hardjump, dancing involves- you guessed it- jumping! to the beat of the music.

Most people dance hardstyle and jumpstyle at raves, and hardstyle dancers sometimes wear phat pants. Phat pants have a fitphatpants1ted waist and the pants get wider down to the floor so that they hide the foot. Most pants are decorated with neon fabric and paint so that they glow under UV light at raves.

here’s a video of hardstyle dancing:

 

and here’s jumpstyle:

hollywood undead

Who are the hollywood undead?
Well my love, they would be:
Oh i do love this band.
I discovered them a few monthes ago by accident, and now they frequent my pandora radio playlist.
Hollywood undead is a relatively new group, formed in 2005, the band originated on Myspace. After putting up songs on their profile, the band reached eight million plays by 2008, and that September, released their debut album, Swan Songs. The band’s genre is a mix of hip hop, rap, and metal all in one. Even though most of their lyrics are about sex and alcohol, i love the beats for most of their songs, and all of their songs are always commical. So don’t listen to them if you don’t have a sence of humor, babe. The band has many unreleased songs such as; Scene for Dummies, The Kids, Turn off the Lights (ft. Jeffree Star, the ever so debated scene queen), Dead in Ditches, Bitches, and Circles. All of which can be found in the depthes of the internet. Currently, Hollywood undead is on the Saints and Sinners tour across the US. More info can be found on their Myspace page, here.


One more note before i leave you. If you’re curious as to why they’re in masks, it originated when they posted pictures of themselves in hockey masks on their band’s Myspace page. I suppose they got possitive feedback and decided to keep the masks. Now, everywhere they go, the Hollywood undead crew members are sporting their unique masks.

europop

eiffel65-4Talk about a blast from the past! The band’s name is Eiffel 65. Eiffel was chosen randomly by a computer program and 65 was accidentally added to their name on a demo CD. The band consisted of Gabry Ponte (left), Maury Lobina (center), and Jeffrey Jey (right). Their albums include: Europop, Contact!, and Eiffel 65. Europop was their most popular album, containing their number one hit Blue(Da Ba Dee) and their also popular songs, Move Your Body, and Too Much of Heaven. Their song Blue was #1 on the charts in 18 countries when in debuted, including France, Spain, Germany, the UK, Ireland, and Australia to name a few. The band’s genre is electronica/dance/europop. Unfortunately, the band split in 2006 when their DJ, Gabry Ponte, went solo. I actually rediscovered this band because my boyfriend loves them, and now, many techno dances and europop car rides later, i’m in love with them too. If you’re looking for their best album to buy, I’d definately recommend Europop. It contains all of their major hits and is just fun and relaxing to listen to.

3oh3

3oh3

3oh3 is a band that I discovered a few monthes ago. The two person band consists of Nathaniel Motte(left) and Sean Foreman(right), both from Boulder, Colorado (area code 303). They met at the University of Colorado and their band was formed in 2004. Their first album 3OH!3  was released in 2007 and they shortly after played in Denver for warped tour. On July 8, 2008, their second album, Want was released and that same year they signed to play for all concerts in warped tour except Philadelphia. Some of their more famous songs include: Punk Bitch, Starstrukk, and Don’t Trust Me. 3oh3’s genre is mainly electronica. Personally, I think they are a great band and fun to listen to. They are signed to play for warped tour 2009- so be there!

linkin-park-w10

Linkin Park. Umm yes, just all around amazing band. They are rock/rap. Their rapper, Mike Shinoda has done some solo work and also some work with fort minor (also amazing). I love all of their songs! Their albums include: Minutes to Midnight, Hybrid Theory, Meteora, Collision Course, and Reanimation. I love all of their albums. If you’ve never heard one of their songs, listen to them. now.

avenged_sevenfold_2005

Avenged Sevenfold.  Avenged Sevenfold is an amazing band. They are rock, not punk! They’re on tour with buckcherry (buckcherry rocks as well!) and i’m hoping to go to one of their concerts soon! woot! Albums are: City of Evil, Waking the Fallen, Sounding the Seventh Trumpet, Warmness on the Soul, Avenged Sevenfold, and City of Evil. Again, I love almost all of their songs.

my_chemical_romance1

My Chemical Romance. My Chemical Romance is quite awesome. They are rock as well. Albums: Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge, The Black Parade, I Brought You My Bullets You Brought Me Your Love, and Life on the Murder Scene. I’d have to say that I like their album The Black Parade the best. If you listen to the very end of it there’s a hidden track (blood) that’s very catchy.

atreyu

Atreyu. Atreyu is.. okay, i’ll say it. Screamo! haha i love them to death! Albums: A Death Grip on Yesterday, Suicide Notes and Butterfly Kisses, The Curse, Fractures in the Facade of Your Porcelain Beauty, Lead Sails Paper Anchor, and The Best of Atreyu, which contains tracks from their other albums. I’d recommend buying The Best of Atreyu. It contains tons of their, well, best songs.

disturbed

Disturbed! sorry, i was gonna put up a pic of the band, but this picture sums them up so much better! (the picture is from their album Indestructible)Disturbed is hardcore rock, indeed. Albums: The Sickness, Believe, Ten Thousand Fists, and Indestructible. Honestly, i haven’t listened to Believe, at least i don’t think i have. But their other three albums are lovely.  I love The Sickeness, and Indestructible does not disappoint.
